Saving Souls

skies are blue

 

A little late night/early morning experimentation at Sculptures by the Sea in Bondi.

Taking advantage of Cave Urban’s “save our souls” sculpture on the headland at Bondi and the lack of any cloud cover, off we (thanks for the invite Rodney Campbell) headed to attempt some star trails – even with the light pollution from the city we were sure to get something, particularly when the moon dipped below the horizon at 1am – through in some light painting for good measure and this is a rough edit of what you end up with . Just watch out for those security guards and people checking out sculptures in the dark – they like to shine their torches where you don’t want them.

A crowd gathers to watch the last of the sunlight for the day as the sun sets behind the City.

Tasma Terrace

I think this was my favourite corridor I walked down whilst out exploring Melbourne recently during +Open House Melbourne, it was so warm and inviting. The Antipodean Steampunk exhibition was also on within the rooms of this wonderful 3 storey former boarding house on the edge of the city. Built in the 1870s/80s by George Nipper and designed by Charles Webb.

 

Cattle Jetty

The remains of the Cattle Jetty built in 1879 to land cattle at the Quarantine station can still be seen today at Observatory Point with the Point Nepean National Park. Point Nepean played an important role in the early settlement, quarantine and defence of Victoria.
